TOP STORY: Man City are interested in signing Rodrygo

Manchester City are interested in a move for Real Madrid winger Rodrygo, reports Marca.

The Premier League champions are reported to be watching his situation at the Santiago Bernabeu, with belief that the 23-year-old could be available after the expected arrival of Kylian Mbappé.

It is said that the Los Blancos hierarchy are aware of interest from the Citizens, but aren't currently alarmed as they focus on securing a new deal for Lucas Vázquez, while they are also expecting to announce the renewal of midfielder Luka Modric.


The LaLiga side are willing to talk about a move for Rodrygo "if they have to," but it looks as though Manchester City will wait until after the UEFA Champions League final before taking any further steps towards a potential deal.

Rodrygo remains contracted with Real Madrid until 2028 after signing a new contract last November.

  • Arsenal are leading the race to sign RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko, reports the Mirror. The 20-year-old is reported to be keen on the switch to the Emirates Stadium, and there is optimism that a deal could be done with the Bundesliga club open to moving him on for a fee in the region of £45 million. Sesko, who scored seven goals in the final seven games of the league campaign, is set to take part in the European Championships with Slovenia next month.

He has two years remaining on his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano.

- Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite has been identified as a potential replacement by Manchester City for centre-back John Stones, reports Football Insider.
